Passion Play Hotels – On Location 10 of 10

Thu, 24 Dec 2009 16:09:00 +0000

Continuing on the topic of European hotel customs, I wanted to address some of the differences in relation to bedding and windows. European bed linens often consist of a duvet, or down-filled comforter encased by a removable cover, which is folded and placed on top of your bed. The duvet is intended to be sufficient […]

Perhaps a silly entry topic, but I often hear from travelers after their return about the different customs related to hotel rooms, toilets, and bathrooms. Sometimes people are even quite upset by the differences. At Image Tours, we try to provide as much information as possible in our tour preparation details to avoid surprises. Here […]

One of my greatest joys of travel is meeting the locals and talking with them about life, customs, and culture.  I encourage every traveler – especially internationally – to strike up conversations with locals during their international travels. Pictured here is ‘Herbert der Bauer’- or ‘Herbert the farmer.’ I met Herbert and several of his […]

The part of Jesus, as well as the other main characters such as Mary, Mary Magdalene, Peter, Judas, John, etc… are split between two actors. Imagine the time and dedication necessary for these actors from May until October!! Fortunately, these main characters have their own private dressing rooms. In the picture to the left, you […]

As part of my visit to the Passion Play theater, I toured backstage to view the dressing rooms and costume displays. Germans are stereotypically well-organized and thorough. This generalization was surely proven correct as I toured backstage. Each actor, costume, and prop has their place, and the dressing rooms are well accommodated to ensure proper […]

Local or regional history in the U.S. dating older than 300 years is difficult to come by and yet the tradition of the Passion Play in the communities of the Ammergau Alps region and specifically Oberammergau, is older than 450 years! Many people assume that the inhabitants of Oberammergau are all devoutly religious and it […]

From the vantage point of the stage you can see again that there isn’t a bad or obstructed view in the theatre. The floor is also well sloped to avoid straining over heads in front of you!Center stage is quite deep, but this functions as storage for the sets and props necessary for such a […]

Inside the Passion Play Theatre, I took a tour guided by Martin Weber, who doubles as a local woodcarver and who has participated in several Passion plays during his life in Oberammergau. I was very impressed with the simple yet well thought out structure of the theatre. I honestly believe there isn’t a bad seat […]

Oberammergau is a small village, easily walkable, and pedestrian friendly. From the location in the photo, essentially the center of the village, the Passion Play theatre is about 2 blocks away. If you look to the bottom left of the photo you will see one of the many storefronts of the local woodcarvers. Many of […]
